Abstract:The Anti Submarine Warfare Commander (ASWC) needs an accurate operational picture and timely answers to critical questions in order to take effective action. They operate under severe time pressure, performing complex multi-component decision tasks, and in rapidly evolving and changing information… more
Abstract:Over the last decade developments in ASW sensor systems has greatly increased the number and quality of the sensor systems deployed thus increasing the volume of data to be assessed by orders of magnitude. Sonobuoys as acoustic sensors provide the unique quality of being an in-situ sensor in remote… more
Abstract:Fishing gear continues to become entangled in underwater towed array surveillance equipment causing a variety of damage to the arrays and towing equipment. Adaptive Methods proposes two solutions which should significantly reduce this damage, fishing gear deflection and fishing gear penetration… more
Abstract:AN/SQQ-89 surface combatant active processing does not currently leverage echoes from off-board sources, such as other combatants in the strike group or transmissions from other systems. Leveraging active emissions bi-statically can improve Q-89 ASW capabilities in high-interest scenarios.… more
Abstract:Current tactical display applications, while adequately providing operator tools needed to assess the data and gain an awareness of the tactical situation, have not achieved seamless integration of decision aides in a cohesive geographic presentation. Specifically, systems suffer from the too many… more
Abstract:The Navy has a need for a high-resolution, high-gain acoustic array that will allow them to make special acoustic measurements of full and model scale submarines. Volumetric arrays such as the High Gain array used on the Hayes for NSWC-CD source localization and the Twisted Bi-Cone array developed… more
Abstract:Over the last decade developments in ASW sensor systems has greatly increased the number and types of the sensor deployed thus increasing the volume of data by orders of magnitude that is required to be simulated by a trainer system. Traditional training systems suffer severe scaling limitations, as… more
Abstract:The Surface Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) community has been focused on improving active processing in recent years. The introduction of the Multi-Function Towed Array (MFTA) provides the fleet with an advanced passive and active receive system. This bi-static system has many advantages to the… more
Abstract:This proposal recognizes the intricacies of maintaining an accurate, complete, and consistent Common Tactical Picture (CTP) across a strike group at the multiple layers of the ASW command structure. As the Navy moves towards more capable sensor systems and netted sensors on conventional and unmanned… more
Abstract:This proposal acknowledges the difficulties of developing an accurate, actionable representation of the battlespace in a Common Tactical Picture. As the Navy matures and expands cross platform network communications, the amount of data shared by multiple platforms in a strike group will continue to… more
Abstract:This proposal acknowledges the challenges with developing Carrier Strike Group (CGS) This proposal acknowledges the challenges with developing Carrier Strike Group (CGS) Undersea Warfare mission plans and maintaining shared situational awareness. As CSG ASW sensor and sensor processing systems have… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
